Fahr's syndrome is a rare neurodegenerative condition characterized by the deposition of calcium in various parts of the brain, mostly the basal ganglia. Fahr's disease is an idiopathic condition, whereas Fahr's syndrome is secondary to systemic conditions, including endocrine and autoimmune causes. Hypoparathyroidism is an important cause of this condition. Clinical features of Fahr's syndrome depend on the site of involvement and are usually neurological.
